Collect double Avios on your next ten flights and holidays before 31 December 2018
Register, book and travel before the New Year and you can collect double Avios on all British Airways flights and holidays. This means that for every £1 you spend on a holiday, you will get 2 Avios as well as the double Avios you will collect on your flights. This offer also includes all domestic flights in the UK and within southern Africa. As well as British Airways flights operated by our partners, American Airlines, Iberia and Finnair when travelling between Europe and North America.

What do I need to do?
Register today and ensure that your Executive Club number is included in your next ten eligible bookings. All travel must be completed by 31 December 2018 to collect double Avios. Your double Avios award will be calculated on your base Avios, your cabin and tier bonus will apply as normal.
This offer applies to new bookings made after registration only.
Register, book and fly by 31 December 2018.

BA Promo: Double (base) Avios (max 10 flights), 27Sep-31Dec 18, registration required

BAEC email announcing double Avios on all flights for the rest of 2018 together with a link to register. Tried twice to register, each time the error "your attempt has been unsuccessful, you are not eligible for this offer" pops up. Anyone else get this?

Just had exactly the same experience.

BA really don't help themselves, do they? Sending out an email to one of their most loyal customers, advertising an offer and then saying you can't have it.

You couldn't make it up.

No email here yet.

Any chance you could copy the T&Cs here. Particularly keen to know flights already booked/ticketed count.

Same here: "Your registration has been unsuccessful, unfortunately you are not eligible for this offer."

BA seems determined to convince us they are useless at not just securing customer data, but also using it!

Reassuring that it’s not just me that received the email and was unsuccessful in registering.
I was feeling a bit miffed!

Just arrived here. Sadly I am already booked up for the rest of the year, so no benefit available. tried to register anyway, and got the instant "Your registration has been unsuccessful, unfortunately you are not eligible for this offer."

Assuming that BA hasn't suddenly become charitable, I assume this is an attempt to sell unused flight inventory?
